BIG TEN. BIG NEWS.
Title Game Locks: With their victories last Saturday, Michigan State and Ohio State punched their tickets to the Big Ten Football Championship Game, held on Dec. 7 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The Spartans defeated Northwestern to secure the outright Legends Division Championship, while the Buckeyes knocked off Indiana to represent the Leaders Division in the contest. It will be Michigan State’s second appearance in the title game following its 2011 berth, while Ohio State will make its Big Ten Football Championship Game debut. Spartan Legend: With its victory over Northwestern on Saturday, Michigan State claimed its second outright division championship in the last three years. The Spartans carry a 10-1 record overall and are 7-0 in Big Ten play. They are looking to end the year with a perfect conference mark for the first time since finishing 7-0 in 1966. Michigan State last completed conference play with an unbeaten record in 1987 when it finished 7-0-1. Buck-eyes on the Title: Ohio State secured at least a share of the Leaders Division title with Saturday’s victory over Indiana. The Buckeyes can still end the year tied with Wisconsin to share the division title, but Ohio State would advance to Indianapolis based on its head-to-head win over the Badgers on Sept. 28. The Buckeyes are 7-0 in Big Ten play and can finish the conference season with a perfect mark for the second straight season and fourth time since 2002. Eight-for-Eight?: Michigan State and Ohio State each carry 7-0 conference marks into their respective matchups this weekend and look to finish the Big Ten season with perfect records. Should the Spartans and Buckeyes both win this weekend, the Big Ten will see a pair of teams finish the conference season undefeated for the first time since 2002 when Iowa and Ohio State completed the season with 8-0 Big Ten records. Prior to 2002, the last time the Big Ten had two teams finish the year with perfect conference records was in 1943 when Michigan and Purdue were each 6-0.

Reaching Double Digits: Two conference teams have already secured 10-win seasons, while another can reach the milestone in the final week of the regular season. Ohio State is one of just four teams in the nation with 11 wins this season after knocking off Indiana, while Michigan State reached the 10-win mark following its win over Northwestern. A Wisconsin victory this weekend would give the Big Ten three teams with at least 10 victories to end the regular season. In addition, Minnesota and Nebraska have an opportunity to finish the year with 10 wins, needing victories this weekend and in their respective bowl games to achieve the feat. The conference last officially had four teams record at least 10 wins in 2003 and has never had five teams reach the landmark. Streak at 23: Ohio State established a new program record in its victory over Indiana Saturday, extending the nation’s longest active-winning streak to 23 games. The Buckeyes own the conference’s fifth-longest streak in history and have the longest winning streak by a Big Ten team in more than 60 years. Ohio State is one victory behind the 24 straight wins by the 1903-05 Minnesota programs. The Buckeyes’ 15 consecutive wins in conference games only are tied for eighth in Big Ten history. The Buckeyes are one of four teams in the nation boasting 11-0 records and one of five undefeated teams. BCS Rankings: Three Big Ten programs are ranked among the top 15 in the latest Bowl Championship Series (BCS) standings. Ohio State set a school record with its 23rd straight victory and improved to 11-0 to hold steady at No. 3 in the BCS poll, the Buckeyes’ highest placement since ending the 2007 campaign at No. 1 overall. Michigan State picked up its 10th win and rose two spots to No. 11 in the BCS poll, the Spartans’ highest ranking since being slotted at No. 11 on Oct. 23, 2011. Wisconsin earned its ninth victory and climbed four slots to No. 15 in the BCS standings, the Badgers’ first top-15 rating since ending the 2011 season at No. 10 overall. Final Weekend of Divisional Play: The final week of the regular season includes four divisional matchups, beginning with Friday’s Legends Division contest featuring Iowa at Nebraska. In addition, Minnesota travels to

BIG TEN. BIG NEWS.

Michigan State in the second Legends Division contest of the weekend. Two Leaders Division contests are scheduled for Saturday as Purdue visits Indiana and Penn State heads to Wisconsin. The Badgers still have an opportunity to earn a share of the Leaders Division crown, needing a win over the Nittany Lions and a Michigan victory against Ohio State. Trophy Time: Three Big Ten trophies will be on the line this weekend as Purdue faces Indiana for the Old Oaken Bucket, Northwestern visits Illinois with the Land of Lincoln Trophy at stake and Iowa travels to Nebraska with the winner earning the Heroes Trophy. The Boilermakers and Hoosiers began playing for the Old Oaken Bucket in 1925, with Purdue holding a 58-27-3 edge in the trophy game. The Land of Lincoln Trophy will be awarded for the fifth time to this year’s winner between Northwestern and Illinois, with each school holding two wins in the series. The Heroes Trophy is in its third installment between the Hawkeyes and Huskers, with Nebraska winning both previous contests. Tracking Stat Champions: Several conference standouts are looking to finish the season as individual stat champions in conference games only. Less than one yard per game separates Ohio State’s Carlos Hyde, the current rushing leader at 146.1 yards per game, and Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah, who is second at 145.4. Hyde looks to become the first Buckeye since Chris Wells in 2007 to lead the conference in rushing, while Abdullah would be the first Husker to win the category. Hyde is also on track to lead the Big Ten in scoring for the second year in a row, averaging 12 points per game. Ohio State’s Braxton Miller is the leader in total offense, averaging 296.3 yards per game. He looks to become the first Buckeye to top the conference in that category since Bobby Hoying in 1995. Penn State’s Allen Robinson is averaging 123.1 receiving yards per game and is on pace to become the first player since Purdue’s Brian Alford in 1996 and 1997 to lead the conference in receiving yards per game in consecutive seasons. Averaging nine catches per game, Robinson is on pace for the most receptions per game since Purdue’s Chris Daniels recorded 9.9 receptions per contest in 1999.

Big Ten Football Awards
The Big Ten will continue to honor its past while recognizing its current standouts at the conclusion of the 2013 campaign. The Big Ten’s enhanced football awards program presents 18 individual trophies in addition to the Big Ten Championship trophy, bearing the names of one or two former standouts. The distinguished names on these football awards honor just a small sampling of the countless student-athletes and coaches who have contributed to the conference’s rich and storied history. Seventeen of the honors will be awarded immediately following the regular season, including awards for the best quarterback, running back, receiver, tight end, offensive lineman, defensive lineman, linebacker, defensive back, kicker and punter. Each of these individual position awards features the names of two former student-athletes. The Big Ten will also continue to honor the conference’s top coaches, offensive and defensive players and linemen and freshmen with end-of-year trophies. Big Ten coaches have the opportunity to claim two awards. Media voters will continue to select the Dave McClain Coach of the Year, which has been awarded since 1972, while coaches vote for the Hayes-Schembechler Coach of the Year award. The top offensive player will receive the Graham-George Offensive Player of the Year award, the best defensive player will be awarded the NagurskiWoodson Defensive Player of the Year award and the best first-year standout will receive the ThompsonRandle El Freshman of the Year award. The winner of the Big Ten Football Championship Game will receive the Amos Alonzo Stagg Championship Trophy, while the most outstanding player in the game will be awarded the Grange-Griffin Championship Game MVP award. The conference also created two postcollegiate awards - the Ford-Kinnick Leadership Award and the Dungy-Thompson Humanitarian Award. The full list of awards, along with a breakdown of the former standouts appearing in each award’s name, appears to the right.

BIG TEN FOOTBALL DIVISIONAL TIEBREAKER
The Big Ten football championship will be decided by a game played between the two division champions. A team or teams that are not eligible to participate in a postseason football bowl game as a result of NCAA and/or Big Ten sanctions shall not be eligible to participate in the Big Ten football championship game. The winner of the Big Ten football championship game will represent the Conference in the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) unless a conference team other than the champion is ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in the final BCS poll. The following procedure will determine the representative from each division in the event of a tie: (a) If two teams are tied, the winner of the game between the two tied teams shall be the representative (b) If three or more teams are tied, steps 1 through 7 will be followed until a determination is made. If only two teams remain tied after any step, the winner of the game between the two tied teams shall be the representative. 1. The records of the three tied teams will be compared against each other 2. The records of the three tied teams will be compared within their division 3. The records of the three teams will be compared against the next highest placed teams in their division in order of finish (4, 5, and 6) 4. The records of the three teams will be compared against all common conference opponents; 5. The highest ranked team in the first Bowl Championship Series Poll following the completion of Big Ten regular season conference play shall be the representative in the Big Ten Championship Game, unless the two highest ranked tied teams are ranked within one spot of each other in the BCS poll. In this case, the head-to-head results of the top two ranked tied teams shall determine the representative in the Big Ten Championship 6. The team with the best overall winning percentage [excluding exempted games] shall be the representative 7. The representative will be chosen by random draw. If one or both of the Big Ten division champions is ineligible to play in the Big Ten championship game, then the participant(s) in the Big Ten championship game shall be determined by the following procedure: a) If the ineligible team is tied for the division championship, then the team it tied with shall be the Big Ten championship game representative. b) If two or more teams are tied with an ineligible team for the division championship, then the ineligible team is removed and the remaining teams revert to the tie-break procedure. c) The division runner-up shall be the Big Ten championship game representative. d) If there is a division runner-up tie, then the tied teams shall revert to the tie-break procedure. If the championship game cannot be played (due to any reason beyond the control of the Big Ten Conference), the two division champions (using divisional tie-breakers as set forth above) shall be declared co-champions and the following procedure will be used to determine the Big Ten Conference representative to the Bowl Championship Series: a) Teams ranked either No. 1 or No. 2 in the final BCS poll will automatically be placed in the BCS championship game. b) If the two divisional representatives met previously in the season and neither is ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in the final BCS standings, the team ranked highest in the final BCS standings shall be the representative to the BCS, unless the other team is ranked within five or fewer places of the higher ranked team. In this case, the head-to-head results of the two teams shall determine the Conference’s BCS representative. c) If the two divisional representatives did not meet previously during the season, the team ranked highest in the BCS standings shall be the BCS representative. d) If the two teams are tied in the BCS standings, the team with the best overall Big Ten record shall be the BCS representative. e) If the two teams remain tied after d), the team with the best combined record of the tied teams against all common Big Ten opponents each team played that season shall be the BCS representative. f) If the two teams remain tied after e), the representative will be the team with the best overall winning percentage. g) If the two teams remain tied after f), the representative will be the team furthest removed from BCS participation. h) If the two teams remain tied after g), the representative shall be determined by a random draw.

BIG TEN MEDAL OF HONOR 100TH ANNIVERSARY SPOTLIGHT
The Big Ten is celebrating 100 years of the Big Ten Medal of Honor. The conference’s most prestigious award, the Big Ten Medal of Honor was first awarded in 1915 to one student-athlete from the graduating class of each university who had “attained the greatest proficiency in athletics and scholastic work.” In the 99 years of the Medal of Honor, over 1,300 student-athletes have earned this distinction. Throughout the course of the season, the conference has highlighted previous Big Ten Medal of Honor recipients in the sport of football, and those honorees appear below.

Wisconsin’s Pat Richter
A three-sport standout in football, basketball and baseball, Pat Richter earned the Big Ten Medal of Honor in 1963. He was a consensus All-American in 1962, leading Wisconsin to the Big Ten Championship and the Rose Bowl Game. Also that season, he was an Academic All-American and was part of the Academic AllAmerica Hall of Fame Class of 1995. He played for the Washington Redskins from 1963-70 after being selected in the first round in 1963. Richter later assumed the role of director of athletics at Wisconsin, serving from 1989-2004. His name appears on the Big Ten’s Richter-Howard Wide Receiver of the Year trophy.

Michigan’s Jon Jansen
Winner of the 1999 Big Ten Medal of Honor, Jansen was a two-time All-Big Ten performer at Michigan and helped lead the Wolverines to a national title in 1997. Serving as captain during his junior and senior seasons, Jansen earned AllAmerica status as a senior, while also garnering Academic All-Big Ten accolades in 1997 and 1998. Following his collegiate career, Jansen was drafted in the second round of the 1999 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins and became a model of consistency during his 10-year career. He started 125 of the 137 games in which he played and was named a second-team All-Pro in 2005.

Purdue’s Drew Brees
Drew Brees ended his collegiate career holding numerous school and conference records en route to winning Big Ten Medal of Honor laurels in 2001. He was not only an All-American and a Maxwell Award winner on the field, but was named Academic All-America of the Year his senior season. He guided the Boilermakers to the Big Ten Championship in 2000 and their first Rose Bowl Game berth since 1967. Drafted in 2001, he played five seasons with San Diego before moving to New Orleans in 2006. He became one of the many faces of the New Orleans community following the Hurricane Katrina tragedy by establishing numerous charitable foundations to help the area in its recovery.

Penn State’s John Urschel
Urschel, who claimed the Big Ten Medal of Honor last May, was a first-team All-Big Ten honoree in 2012, starting all 12 games at right tackle and helping the Nittany Lions lead the Big Ten in total offense during the conference season. A candidate for the 2013 National Football Foundation National Scholar-Athlete Award, he earned his bachelor’s degree in less than three years on campus. He earned his first master’s degree last May and is currently working on his second master’s. This semester, he is teaching Integral Vector Calculus and researching multigrid methods and computational mathematics.

Illinois’ Mike Hopkins
Awarded the Big Ten Medal of Honor in 1992, Mike Hopkins started in the Illini defensive backfield as a sophomore, junior and senior. His teams went to four consecutive bowl games, capping his career as a captain for the 1991 squad that went to the Sun Bowl. Hopkins was an Academic All-American in 1991 and graduated with a degree in aerospace engineering. He will realize a childhood dream later this month when he climbs aboard a Souyz spacecraft on Sept. 25 for his first spaceflight. Hopkins will rendezvous with the International Space Station and assist with several hundred experiments during his six-month mission. More information on Hopkins and his expedition can be found on nasa.gov.

Michigan State’s Morten Andersen
Andersen, who won the Big Ten Medal of Honor in 1982, was a first-team All-Big Ten selection at Michigan State and also garnered Academic All-Big Ten accolades as a senior in 1981, a year in which he recorded the Big Ten’s longest field goal with a 63-yarder. His success at Michigan State earned him a spot on the Walter Camp All-Century Team. Andersen was drafted in the fourth round of the 1982 NFL Draft and went on to become the NFL’s all-time leading scorer with 2,544 points. In his NFL career that spanned from 1982 to 2007, Andersen was a three-time All-Pro, a seven-time Pro Bowler and a member of the NFL’s 1980s and 1990s All-Decade teams.

Minnesota’s Tony Dungy
Dungy was Minnesota’s recipient of the 1977 Big Ten Medal of Honor, following a standout career as the Gophers’ starting quarterback. He ended his career as the school’s leader in pass attempts, completions, touchdown passes and passing yards. He was twice named the team’s Most Valuable Player before moving on to a successful career as a player and coach in the National Football League. Dungy’s life has been marked by many community service initiatives. He also supports numerous non-profit organizations such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters, the Boys and Girls Club, Prison Crusade Ministry and Family First, leading to his name gracing the conference’s annual Humanitarian Award.

Ohio State’s John Frank
Winner of the 1984 Medal of Honor, Frank set school records for receptions and yards by a tight end during his career. Finishing with 121 receptions and 1,481 yards, he was a two-time All-Big Ten honoree, earning the distinction as a junior in 1982 and a senior in 1983, and was named team MVP his final season. Frank’s success extended beyond the field as he was named an Academic All-Big Ten selection and an Academic All-American his junior and senior seasons and was a Rhodes Scholar finalist. After two Super Bowl titles with the San Francisco 49ers, Frank returned to Ohio State and received his doctorate in June, 1992.

Iowa’s Larry Station
A four-year starter for the Hawkeyes from 1982-85, Station finished his career with nearly 500 tackles, leading Iowa in the category in each of his seasons. He ended his career by winning the Big Ten Medal of Honor in 1986. Station recorded 125 or more tackles as a sophomore, junior and senior, years in which he earned first-team All-Big Ten accolades. He cemented his status as a College Football Hall of Famer after earning first-team All-America accolades in 1984 and 1985. In the classroom, Station earned Academic All-Big Ten honors as a sophomore, junior and senior, and was an Academic All-American in his final season.

Indiana’s John Hammerstein
Hammerstein was Indiana’s Big Ten Medal of Honor winner in 1996. He is the only two-time Academic All-American in Indiana football history, earning the honors following his junior and senior seasons. A four-year letterwinner, he started at defensive tackle his final three years and was team captain as a senior in 1995. After completing his undergraduate work in biology, Hammerstein attended the IU School of Medicine before completing his orthopedic surgery residency at Michigan State. Currently he is a spinal surgeon in Bloomington.

Northwestern’s Pat Fitzgerald
Winner of the 1997 Big Ten Medal of Honor, Fitzgerald was one of the most decorated linebackers in college football history. He was a two-time consensus All-American, earning the honor as a junior in 1995 and a senior in 1996. He was the first repeat winner of the Bednarik Award and Nagurski Trophy and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2008. Now in his seventh season as the head coach at his alma mater, Fitzgerald has guided the Wildcats to five straight bowl games, including last year’s Gator Bowl victory, their first bowl win since 1949. His name graces the conference’s annual Butkus-Fitzgerald Linebacker of the Year Award.

Illinois’ Thomas Dwight “Dike” Eddleman
Eddleman was named Illinois’ Big Ten Medal of Honor recipient in 1949 after earning a combined 11 varsity letters for the Illini in the sports of football, basketball and track and field. Eddleman led the Big Ten in punting in 1948 and also punted for the Illinois team that played in the 1947 Rose Bowl Game. Eddleman also holds the school records for longest punt and punt return. Beyond the football field, Eddleman was a Chicago Tribune Silver Basketball winner as the Big Ten MVP, a two-time NBA All-Star, and competed in the high jump in the 1948 Summer Olympics in London. His name appears on the Big Ten’s EddlemanFields Punter of the Year award.
